Young Adult - Twilight

Twilight (The Twilight Saga, Book 1) by Stephenie Meyer
Sacrificing her own happiness for her mother, Bella moved to Forks to stay with Charlie, her dad. First day in a new school is hard enough without Edwards gaze. She was fascinated by him immediately, and he was fascinated by her as well. So Edward turns out to be a vampire. That should scare off young Bella, but interestingly enough, it doesn’t.

This book is being sold as a young adult, I enjoyed and I have not fit that category for several years now. The interaction between Bella and Edward is electric, it jumps off the page. The Cullen family and Charlie have there own demons to attend (no pun intended). The relationship of Edward and his family is almost endearing as to there closeness and reliance on each other. I can see why this is a very popular series and am anxious to get started on ‘New Moon’.
